One of the most difficult things about buying an oriental rug online is picturing it in your room. Using your imagination works great, but can sometimes be stressful, since you still worry that you'll be disappointed once you put your rug in place.
The Ask A Designer Service virtually places rugs into your room so you can see how it will look before you buy it!
How Our "Ask A Designer" Service Works
When you contact someone on our design team, they will walk you through this entire process so it's smooth and effortless. Even if you don't know what type of rug you want, our designer will happily help you out, so you don't necessarily need to have a specific rug in mind. Before we get started with that, though, you need to pick or let the designer know which room you want your rug in.
Pick a Room, or 2
First, decide which room you want a rug in. Do you want the rug(s) to go in your living room, or bedroom? Do you need a living room rug? Do you need a bedroom area rug? To keep your decision making easier for you, we recommend narrowing your choices down to 2 rooms at most.
Choose a Rug, or 3
Now is the fun part! Browse our online store and pick out the rugs you want to see in your home. This is supposed to help you make a decision easier, not make it more difficult.
So, we suggest only picking your top 3 rugs for each room. If you have questions about which rug will be best, let us know. We are happy to talk you through all your questions, and help you narrow down your choices. We even have live chat available for your convenience, down in the right hand corner of the page.
Send Us a Photo of Your Room
Snap a picture of your room and send it to us. If possible, try to make the room as free of distractions as you can. Don't worry about lighting or getting it "just right"— our design team will take care of making sure the pictures help choose the best rug color for your space. You set designer will also work out choosing the best rug shape that fits with your room or rooms.
Let Us Take It From Here
Within 48 hours, you will receive photos back of the rugs in your room. You will see your room before and after the rugs are placed. Here is a sample we made up to show you just how skilled our designers are:

- If the room is not well lit, please consider turning lights on in order to get a better representation of the space.
- The image should be a landscape orientation and sized between 40 KB and 2 MB (the more image data, the better).
